About Us

40Winks was born from our belief that nightshirts offer a cooler, more relaxed way to sleep. They offer freedom ("hang loose" as our customers say!), and can substitute for dressing gowns. 

All the best features of European nightshirts are found in our 40Winks' design. Confident and sexy, like a big business shirt. We only use 100% cotton for breathability, and we will post you fabric samples (for free) to help you choose.

My (Jessica) background is sewing - I made my first garment at 6 years old, and for many years helped with my Mum's clothing business.

Making 40Winks

Our night shirts are superbly tailored - all seams are top-stitched, with french & flat-fell seams. No overlocking or exposed seams - giving you comfort and a hard-wearing nightshirt.

We only select the best of fabrics - business shirt grade cottons and lush flannels. Always 100% cotton for breathability.

Our nightshirts are proudly made in NZ, handcrafted cottage NZ sewing, made with love. 

We'll do everything we can to make you happy, including sleeve shortening and extra-long nightsgirts on request.  In the unlikely event of faults we will remedy. You are also protected by the NZ Consumer Guarantees Act.
